Dear colleagues

The APNIC Secretariat has now implemented the following policy

     prop-053: Changing minimum IPv4 allocation size to /22

         - The minimum allocation size has been reduced to /22
         - Two of the criteria for an initial allocation have been
           updated to show:
               - An  LIR must have used a /24 from their upstream
                 provider or demonstrate an immediate need for a /24
               - An LIR must demonstrate a detailed plan for use of a
                 /23 within a year

     prop-054: NIR operational policy document revision

         - The document now includes a reference to ip6.arpa
         - The reverse DNS processes have been updated
         - The appendix has been removed

     prop-057: Proposal to change IPv6 initial allocation criteria

         - Current LIRs with an existing IPv4 allocation from APNIC or
           an NIR can now justify an IPv6 initial allocation without
           documenting a plan for making 200 assignments

The comment period for the draft documents incorporating these
policies has ended. The updated documents are now officially active:

     Policies for IPv4 address space management in the Asia Pacific

     IPv6 address allocation and assignment policy

     APNIC guidelines for IPv6 allocation and assignment requests

     Operational policies for National Internet Registries in the APNIC

For more information on the history of the policy proposals, see:
